RASK is another founding member of the TDA Klann crew with Maser and his unique graffiti style has been seen all over Ireland and further afield. He also helped to organise Ireland’s oldest and most important graffiti jam, the Bridge Jam on the Peace Bridge in Drogheda which has been running since 1994. RASK was allowed to do his pieces inside the National Gallery of

Will St. Leger could well be considered to be the hub of the Irish street art scene. Not merely content with his street art work he has devised ideas such as the “Cause and Effect” where people collectively own an artwork,

each person owning one section and then they have to decide how to handle this, or the “Art Raid” which is an exhibition where at some point during the night an alarm goes off and whatever you can make it out the door with is yours. He is also infamous for his “Artivism” projects such as the laying of hundreds of fake landmines in Dublin parks to highlight the need to ban landmines. The piece Will created for Dublin Contemporary deals with homelessness and is called “One day I will grow wings” which is taken from a Radiohead lyric.
